Burns Night

Certainly you remember Robbie Burns and sing a song from one of his poems every New Years.

Being in the UK, it is easy to join the tradition of celebration when his birthday rolls around every year.  This marked my third (and last) Burns Night celebration at the Mess.

Altho there were about the same number of people as last year, someone got a bit more creative with the seating, making up five tables of 9-10 diners rather than a head table with long lines down the sides. It made for much more congenial conversation at dinner.

I had managed to complete another Lotus Blossom Shawl, never mind that I blocked it last night.  Note, blocking board propped up against a register leads to rapidly drying shawl.

tossing it over a fancy white blouse, floor length plaid skirt and country dance away the evening.

Shawl – Lotus Blossom from Fiddlesticks Knitting. Three skeins of Louet Gems in Pewter knit on 3.75 mm needles. Started in SF and finished up a few days ago.
